Johnny Cash, "Cremation of Sam McGee" [recitation of poem] "Uploaded by fadmacat on Nov 15, 2008 Written by Robert Service. Album: Personal File (highly recommended) I like this version of the poem more than others, due to its darker and more sinister mood."
"some books are meant / to be read just like this / alone, with the evening, / a bowl of fruit ripening / waiting for the reader / to grow hungry, but / she won't, the book / will devour her, / and it / will soon / become / morning."
